Difference between your vehicle and the CP repository

Before adding your classic car, it is important to understand the difference between the vehicles in our repository and your vehicle.

In our database we keep a list of all manufacturers and their models. For example Manufacturer: Jaguar and Model: E-Type. NO information about our members' classic cars is stored in our directory, e.g. no VIN, year of manufacture and chassis numbers.
Attention, we currently only list models, no sub-models such as Jaguar E-Type, Series III, V12, roadster.

Each of your own classic cars are from a certain manufacturer and belong to a model, but also have vehicle-specific data (year of construction, color, etc.)
For example, you can own two Jaguar E-Types. Both are made by Jaguar and both are model E-Type but the first is from 1965 and is red and the second is from 1970 and is green, both with their own VINs.

When adding your classic car, it can happen that you cannot find the model of your classic car in our database because we have not recorded all models yet. You can therefore simply add the non-existing model. Please check out the description of the individual fields below in this description.
